Due to its outstanding predictive strength and the good generality of its mathematical constitution, quantum concept is in a position, not less than in precept, to explain the entire microscopic and macroscopic houses of the actual global, from the subatomic to the cosmological point. however, ever because the Copen hagen and Gottingen colleges in 1927 gave it the definitive formu lation, now generally called the orthodox interpretation, the idea has suffered from very critical logical and epistemologi cal difficulties. those shortcomings have been instantly mentioned through a few of the important founders themselves of quantum conception, to wit, Planck, Einstein, Ehrenfest, Schrodinger, and de Broglie, and through the thinker Karl Popper, who assumed a place of radical feedback in regards to the traditional formula of the speculation. the purpose of the individuals within the workshop on Open Questions in Quantum Physics, which used to be held in Bari (Italy), within the division of Physics of the college, in the course of might 1983 and whose court cases are accumulated within the current quantity, accord ingly was once to debate the formal, the actual and the epistemo logical problems of quantum conception within the gentle of modern the most important advancements and to suggest a few attainable resolutions of 3 easy conceptual dilemmas, that are posed respectively ~: (a) the actual advancements of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen argument and Bell's theorem, i. e.
